The adjustment is inside the passenger compartment. will give you the instructions i have:
1. fully release the brake lever
2. pull the parking brake lever with normal effort. maximum travel should be 6 to 8 clicks
3.remove the console and adjust the cable length by turning the nut on the equalizer
4.recheck the parking brake stroke and adjust the stroke as necessary
5.loosen the parking brake switch mounting bolt. adjust the switch so that when the lever is fully released, the switch lamp goes out, and when the lever is pulled one click the switch lamp illuminates.
6.if the switch does not operate as described, check the switch lamp bulb. if the bulb is good, replace the switch.
7. after the adjustment make sure that the rear brakes do not drag when the parking brake lever is released.
8. install the console
hope that helps

Adjusting hand brake


there is a cable adjuster under the center console if its got a rear ashtray just pull that out and look there.but you should remove the rear brake drums and check the shoes. and the handbrake fulcrum levers, they can sieze up. also make sure the levers return to the stops with handbrake off and the auto adjusters are working ok before adjusting the handbrake cable! it helps brake performance if you give the auto adjusters a bit of a tweak before putting the drums back on. manually adjust 3-4 clicks or until the drum goes back without binding.

My handbrake needs adjusting in my Toyota Corolla 1994. Can u please explain how this adjustment is done.


Hello, My usual Brands are Ford products, but Foreign cars usually use simple, less expensive ways to do things. Assuming the brake pads are good, there should be a cable connected to the handbrake. You would usually pull the handbrake up to engage about 1/4 the way to engagement and lock it there.
Then you would go underneath the car and find the cable that stretches from the handbrake lever to a juction with a second cable. There should be an adjusting thread somewhere at this intersection.

With the rear wheels off the ground, you would tighten the nut on the threads of the handbrake cable until you hear rubbing in the rear brakes. Then get inside the car and pull back on the handbrake lever and you should not be able to move the rear wheels with the handbrake set. You then release the handbrake 100% and the rear wheels should turn mostly without noise.

Now if you can not find an adjustment nut under the car, it is possible the handbrake adjustment nut is under the handbrake cover/boot inside the car. Still use the same process of setting the lever 1/4 engaged and tightening the threaded cable until the rear wheels start dragging.

I hope this helps you.

Ive replaced clutch and gear lever cables but it still is stiff going down throught the gears also had new gearbox on a j2 lantra


1. replace your gear oil.
2. is this an automatic or manual transmission engine? if manual, adjust your clutch release a little higher than usual to let your clutch engange earlier.

Hi, handbrake warning light function?


Quite often if you can get a look down beside handbrake,which may require removal of boot, you may see a switch that is activated by pulling handle, as well as an adjustment that would allow you to tighten slack in cable, up a bit to eliminate slack that is most likely causing the light to flicker. If not there, look under car where it attaches to the 2 rear cables for an adjustment, and tighten it up there. Not too tight, as you don't want brakes dragging, just snug. Remember, safety stands while your under there if it has to be done from under.

The handbrake adjuster is under the centre console behind the lever. If its coming too high, check that the levers at the rear brake calipers are free and moving back to their stop position - they are prone to seizing up on older or little used cars. They can usually be freed off with a bit of lube and working the lever back and forwards. If that dosn't work, unfortunately you'll need new calipers. Do not adjust the handbrake cable unless the caliper levers are at their stops as this seriously reduces handbrake efficiency!
